I asked The LORD if He wanted to talk and He replied to me and then said, “Resplendent Glory.”
He usually gives me a couple words to start with that become the title of the word.
Then He said, “The glory of this world is passing away. The glory of man passes away. But My GLORY endures forever. I do not change.
My Glory transcends anything of this world. It is resplendent and I AM going to pour it out on you.
You will be resplendent with My Glory. Have you not read that darkness will fill the earth and great darkness the people?
Yet I said that My Glory will be SEEN upon you! My Glory will shine in and around you to others.
Even now there is glory you cannot see that touches others lives as you touch them. Just because YOU can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.”
“ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you-rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of The LORD), for your light has come, and the glory of The LORD has risen upon you! [Zechariah 8:23.]
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but The LORD shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isaiah 60:19-22; Malachi 4:2; Revelation 21:2-3.]
And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isaiah 2:2,3; Jeremiah 3:17.]
Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Psalm 119:32.]” Isaiah 60:1-5 AMP.
“My Glory is not a play toy, nor something to be misused. I’ve said, Do not touch My Glory!
My Glory I will not give to another. I alone am worthy of all glory and honor power. I know what it takes to obey such a command.
I know that it takes a pure heart. So I have been working on making your hearts more pure, that as I pour out this Glory, you would not THINK to touch it, or take credit for anything that I alone do through you.
I AM to be preeminent! I AM to be the object of affection. I AM to be the GLORIOUS ONE who is worthy of all praise. Do not love the praise of men, more than me!
This too is idolatry that will disqualify many. I AM rooting out all the insecurities and rejection from you that you will not seek to see your name in print and lights more than My Name.
For long, My Church has sought to make a name for itself. They did this at Babel and fell to confusion. The kingdoms of men will fail, but My Kingdom will never fail.”
“All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, The rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, and I will glorify the house of My Glory.” Isaiah 60:7 NKJV.
“I will glorify My Temples and all that is not of Me will be eradicated. I will have a spotless Bride. I will not allow you to continue in your present state.
Hearken to the sound of the drums again. Do you hear the sound of the warrior drums? Do you hear the chimes of war? Do you not see the lawlessness displayed is now bearing fruit in the lands?
Can you see My beloveds, how rebellion fills the earth and violence the hearts of men. Haters of God abound, and self has been exalted in the hearts of the youth.
I will make a deafening sound when I display My Glory! There will be a hush of holiness in the hearts of men as they see My Power displayed in resplendent Glory!
“And I will shake all nations and the desire and the precious things of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with splendor, says The LORD of hosts. [Isaiah 60:5; Matthew 2:1-12.] The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine, says The LORD of hosts. The latter glory of this house [with its successor, to which Jesus came] shall be greater than the former, says The LORD of hosts; and in this place will I give peace and prosperity, says The LORD of hosts.” Haggai 2:7-9 AMP.
“Though many are panicked and affected around you yet you will have peace. For it is not you that will be the object of My wrath, but the harlot church will be the object of the wrath.
Just as I saved Jeremiah in the midst of war and persecution from the hand of the one who should have been his brother and honored him, so I will execute My Wrath on those who persecute you and hate you.
As I change the order of things and pour out glory you will see a shift in the natural, evidence of a shift in the spiritual.
Surely in a flood of many waters, they shall not come near you. FIGHT with the word. BELIEVE in MY WORD.
I AM with you My beloveds. I AM with you. I AM the One who keeps you in famine. I AM the One who holds the keys of death and hell.
I say who lives and who dies. I say when you will die, and I keep alive for My Purposes and in display of My mercy.
Have CONFIDENCE in My love for you Beloved ones. I AM your Everlasting Father and I care for my sons and daughters.”
“Behold, the eye of The LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for The LORD; He is our help and our shield.” Psalm 33:18-20 NKJV.
“For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” Psalm 32:6-7 NKJV.
“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot , make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:16-18 NKJV.
“Also realize My beloved ones that I AM asking many to lay down their lives. Only if a seed falls to the ground and dies will it bring forth life.
This is a principle. If you love your life, you will lose it. Do not love the things of this world. For this world is fading away and will dramatically change as time is escalating.
Do not cling to the things of this world. Do not be conformed to the knowledge of the world, but seek ME for wisdom and knowledge.
Seek Me for understanding of the times you are in. For I AM pouring out answers to those who ask.
Ask and you shall receive. Knock and the door will be opened. I will show you great and marvelous things if you will only believe!”
“He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” John 12:25-26 NKJV.
The Consummation of Love
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:17-19 NKJV.
